jobs in the first full year of barack obama's presidency. unemployment, 10.6%, but three years passed, we saw increases in retail, health care, education, and look at the map today. every state that becomes lighter in this picture is a state where there was an improvement in the unemployment rate over that period of time. i will tell you there, ray great many of them out here. the unemployment rate for ohio, changed 7.2%. lock at the massive change in the country in terms of the improvement in terms of states that are no longer losing jobs, but now making jobs. to make that happen, the bureau of labor statistics says you had to have a lot of job creation. 4.4 million jobs created. what you don't hear so much about, we lost 4.3 million jobs in the dark days. the net gain according to the net record, is only 125,000 jobs. based on that even though the president did create a lot of jobs, when you look at that, look at the extent of his claim, 5 million jobs created, we have to say that's simply false. i know many democrats will say that's because the bush years and the economy that's lef

at the overall question of real unemployment. can barack obama be reelected with the numbers he is facing? it's a tough, tough task. no question. look at the president been reelected since the 1950s and the unemployment rates at that time. dwight eisenhower. 4.1% and nixon 5.6 considered huge at that time. bill clinton, 5.1 and second gush 5.4 and barack obama whopping 8.1% unemployment. august numbers for all of these president before they were ree lebted. very difficult for any president to carry a weight like that into a re-election campaign when barack obama was elected the first time it was historic. if he is elected again it will also be historic because no president has been reelected with that kind of number since franklin roosevelt. the waning days of the great depression. i'm barack obama, and i approve this message. these appliances could have been made here in america. but a company called global tech maximized profits by paying its workers next to nothing... under sweatshop conditions in china. when mitt romney led bain, they saw global tech as a good investment... even knowing t

never go above that. unemployment went up above 8% by february, before the stimulus had actually passed, much before it ever went into effect, and it's never come back down below that. so for the obama administration, what they somehow have to argue is, this was bad because it was worse than they knew. romney will say, you tailed by your own measure. is they will say, we thought the recession was about a third as bad as it was. and everybody thought that, goldman sachs and the other banks thought that. so we were optimistic in the way that everybody was optimistic, but if we hadn't done what we did, things would be much worse today. >> so does president obama at the debate tonight just say, hey, everybody was wrong about how bad the recession was, flkding us? we couldn't see it coming? >> so, that's a little bit a part of it. but the problem for them, and i image romney will get into this, but year over year, the obama administration has been too optimistic. for years, pretty much every year so far, they've said the economy is going to recover faster than it actually has. and there are
